“Receiving the Society’s Student Scholarship was such as honor. Knowing that I had a year to get to know other Social Workers and build relationships changed my life in so many ways that I remain a member to this day. I don’t think I’d feel like a complete Social Worker had I not come across this Society of wonderful leaders.”
Christina Troisi
Award winner
